Hotel Managers At Swiss International Hotels & Resorts

Date Posted: 17/Jul/2014
Deadline: Not Specified

Swiss International West Africa is a joint venture with Ecosignature, owned by Dr. Wasiu Babalola. The Company is capitalizing on the growth of the economies in Western Africa and as such of the hotel industry. Currently there are 10 agreements signed and 4 hotels are open for business. The plan for Africa is to have 50 hotels open by 2020. Swiss International is offering both Management- and Manchise agreements in this region, which seem to be to the liking of the owners. The Manchise model is a hybrid between the Management- and the Franchise agreement. Although the General Managers are working for individual and separate owners, they are part of the group of Swiss International Hoteliers. A reporting structure is in place to the owning companies and to Swiss International West Africa. 

Swiss International Hospitality Commons is the holding company, registered in Switzerland and operated from its International Service Center in Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates. The company has offices in 10 countries worldwide. Please see for more information:
